Married People, Single Sex: Urban Adultery (2002)
Everyone has desires. Meet six people who find that the joujrney into passion can lead in many directions: a couple whose relationship is challenged by a wild threesome, a woman trying to get her man to commit, a husband yearning for more from his wife. They must remember to be careful what they wish for.
I don't have all the words right now but this film is a work of art.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
Some people, like the previous reviewer, just don't get it. If you're simply looking for porn, then this isn't for you, but if you want an erotic piece of storytelling, check out 'Married People, Single Sex: Urban Adultery'.This is a well-written and very well-acted tale of three couples (each of which are friends with the others) going through everyday issues that deal with the realities of being in love for an extended period of time. After three years of happiness, Allison wants to marry Shawn. He knows it and their friends know it, but he's still not ready, which creates awkwardness and outside temptations. Charlotte and Jessie have been happily married for some time now, but her professional life and a matter from her past cause her to begin slowly pushing him away, emotionally and physically, creating confusion and frustration on his part in a tale of patience, revelation, and commitment. In a story line that tests fidelity and morality, things were going smoothly for Bruce and Maya, until her old college friend Candace shows up and stays over for a few days. This last one is ultimately a reminder that simply growing up doesn't necessarily make you mature enough to be in love.Via several personal narratives in which each character takes a moment to talk to the audience, further insight is conveyed about the past and present of the current situation.Neither overly spectacular or bland, this is simply a nicely done story that provides a good amount of entertainment on the adult love life.
*SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT*I saw this on cable the other day. You know, I usually don't regret staying up past my bedtime just to watch a little late night nookie but this flick annoyed me right off the bat. It starts off with sex scenes being interrupted by black and white close-up scenes of the characters telling their personal feelings straight into the camera. I should have taken this disastrous film-making choice as my cue to hit the hay. Instead, I stuck it out and cried myself to sleep later.Black and white close-up scenes saturate "Married People, Single Sex: Urban Adultery". It's the story of three couples and their sex lives. The camera acts as confessor as everyone gets to take time to have their inner thoughts revealed. So we get to see people whine to the camera about how they're unfulfilled in their sex life and waaa, waaa, waaa. Hey, guess what? You're in a skin flick! Start acting like it, dang it. What the heck am I watching? It's a softcore soap opera. Oh goodie. Just what I wanted.The sex scenes are internet-porn quality at best. There's nothing here worth watching. Take my advice, if you see this movie playing on cable one night, turn the TV off and hop into bed. Let these people complain to someone else.
